Make a Mini King Cake With Your Minis

I don’t know about your kids, but my kids love sweets, icing, and sugar. They also love to help in the kitchen. My sweet sister-in-law showed up with this mini king cake idea and it was totally a hit!

I am not the mom who goes to all of the parades. We do go to some but I like to incorporate crafts and baking into Carnival season. There are lots of ways to enjoy the Carnival season besides attending every parade. Here is one way to be festive from the warmth of your home. You can even play some Mardi Gras music for fun while you bake. For added fun, you can throw in some masks and a king cake baby.

What you will need:

  • 1 can of crescent rolls
  • Colored Sugar – We used Yellow, Green, and Purple
  • Ground Cinnamon
  • Powdered sugar
  • Water

Take crescent rolls out and roll them into a circle. Connect the ends. Sprinkle with Cinnamon. Follow Crescent Roll directions for baking. Put them in the oven on a cookie sheet and bake.

Next, while the king cakes are in the oven, mix powdered sugar and water to make the icing. Mix to the consistency that you like. Let the king cakes cool, then drizzle icing on top.

Next, sprinkle with colored sugar.

Yummy! All done. Eat and enjoy it.

My kids really enjoyed this activity. They were super excited. The mini king cakes are delicious for both kiddos and parents.
